Default Oshkosh 2016 trip writeup

I finally, after 30 plus years, made it to the biggest airshow in the world. To fly there in an airplane you built by yourself in the garage made it even more special. Van's Aircraft was celebrating the 30th anniversary of the very successful RV-6 model, and boy were there a lot of RV's there. I committed to going early enough to clear my busy schedule and take off for the week.

The rest of the write up is here.

All of the photos are here.

Default Nicely done!

My wife and I enjoyed your write up and photos. This was her first visit to Osh and we went by (land-based) RV. After seeing your photos, I think she is excited for me to finish the 7 so that we can travel by air!
